We are the pacesetter (1ST) by awarding Gadangmes and Ewes musicians,film actors & actresses on larger scale through “VOTING SHORTCODS” and Apps which has never happened since Ga people migrated to Ghana in the 17 century.
In the history of Ghana, Ojekoo radio station is the only music and film award organisation, that serves as a bridge (link) in projecting Ewes and Gadangmes through music and films.
The CEO Mr. Lawrence Nii Larte Lartey of GEM&FA said his inspirations came from the then Ga mantse (King) Tackie Tawiah I and he also said, it has been his aim to promote the Ga, Dangme, Ewe musicians and film makers by creating a scheme like this to project these talented artists to the world.
Our first award took place at the Osu presby church Accra on 17 /08/2018. This historic occasion was graced by numerous Gadangme traditional leaders, musicians, film actors, artresses and the general public.
The second edition was held at the Accra art Centre on 07/21/2019, this was graced by La – Dade kotopon cultural troupe,many popular musicians and traditional leaders from Volta region. Professor Nii Odartey Mills, Nii Abonua(GA mantse aides), Mr. Samuel Alabi Tetteh, Ga Noryaa manye, Nkulenu company limited and some international musicians came to support the awards.
Our third edition for the year 05/09 /2020 was supposed to take place at Cocoloco Beach Ada – Foah, greater Accra but it was cancelled due to the CONVID-19 crisis. We had no choice than to use our digital platform for the main award night ceremony.
